From my opening post in the PBP thread:
"If Hamilton plays the way they did last week, I predict another loss.
If BLM plays the same way he did last week, he deserves to be banched for the game. The question is, will Stein have the stones to do so.
Our primary returner and DB is out with an undisclosed condition.
We are starting two raw rookies at CB - something ANY team will exploit.
Our placekicker has disappeared into the ether and is on the suspended list with no explanation.
We are dressing only 6 O-linemen. One would think that is a bad decision since we lost TWO of them last week to injury.
Frankly, with what we saw last week, I’m not too hopeful for a win, despite the turnover in personnel in Toronto.
Maybe one of these decades the team might actually start the season prepared to win football games…"
Let’s parse this, shall we?
Line 1 - correct.
Line 2 - correct, but he had to leave due to injury, not Orlondo rightfully benching him.
Line 3 - DBs needed help, because they were horrible. Gallimore can be our permanant returner.
Line 4 - yup, cost us BIG time.
Line 5 - Legghio never saw the field as of the 4th quarter - until he screwed-up an onside kickoff.
Line 6 - We had 2 O-linemen go down. Bit us in the ass again.
Line 7 - yup.
Line 8 - still waiting…
The $1.5M man BLM is worse than Arbuckle and Cornelius at this point. I have yet to see ANY evidence of his so-called “leadership” or “back to 2018” abilities.
I’m now calling him “Jason Maas 2.0”, or JM20 for short. Broken goods, and now it looks as if he might have a major injury.
We’re in Year infinity of the Mark Washington Defence Era. It has been at least four years too long. The man is incapable of putting together a capable squad.
There’s a saying in Major League Baseball: “You can’t win a Pennant in April, but you sure can LOSE one”. Same thing in the CFL. Two points at the beginning of the season are the same as tow points at the end of the season. We have lost out on four points so far.
Again, there were too many boneheaded major penalties. Speaks to team “culture”.
This “team” is looking like another double-digit losing team that won’t make the playoffs - IN A YEAR WE ARE HOSTING THE GREY CUP!!!
Seriously - was there ANYTHING to praise this game?
